Last term we held a Coffee morning at which I met a number of DC parents – I was really grateful for the opportunity to learn about parents’ experience of the College and it helped me to know what our priorities in Secondary should be in the future. I’d like to continue to hold sessions like this and would like to invite you to join me on Thursday 10 November at 8.30am to continue the conversation over a cup of coffee.
I’d like the theme of this next session to be “Assessment and Reporting”. It is something we are currently looking at in Secondary and I would love to understand more the needs that our parents have in relation to this area of school and the ways in which we can use assessment and reporting to strengthen parent partnerships and benefit student learning.
So if you would like to come and share your perspectives on this topic with me, please send an email to Claudia Richardson to register your interest in attending – I very much look forward to the discussion.
James Smith (Head of Secondary)
